  • Powerful adsorbent of copper and heavy metals
  • Copper specific chelating resin
  • Removes all types of copper

CupriSorb™ is a powerful adsorbent of copper and heavy metals. CupriSorb™  will remove copper more rapidly and efficiently than carbon and is thus ideal for emergency copper removal. It extracts all types of copper, including chelated copper, and remains effective until it turns a deep blue-black color. It may be regenerated repeatedly. If placed in continuous use, it will gradually extract even precipitated copper from the gravel/substrate bed as well. CupriSorb™ will allow maintenance of invertebrates in copper-treated tanks by removing copper leaching from substrates.

CupriSorb™ is a powerful copper specific chelating resin. Competing products are not chelating products, but merely cation exchange resins. Such resins can remove copper from freshwater but are ineffective in saltwater.

Sizes: 100 mL, 250 mL, 500 mL, 4 L

Use 250 mL for every 600 L (150 US gallons) to remove up to 7,500 mg (12 ppm) of copper. Use in filter media bag such as The Bag™. For best results, CupriSorb™ should be placed so as to maximize the flow of water through it. To remove undetectable substrate leaching copper keep CupriSorb™ in use for at least 2 weeks after copper tests report no copper. Use in a canister filter, chemical filtration module, box filter, or any high flow area of a trickle filter.

Exhaustion is indicated by a pronounced discoloration of the beads to a deep blue black color. Use MultiTest™ Copper to monitor copper. When exhausted, CupriSorb™ may be discarded or regenerated.

REGENERATION: Soak in a non-metal container with 2 cups of water and 1⁄2 cup of muriatic acid (available with pool supplies: PAY HEED TO WARNINGS on acid container!). This is best done outside and away from children. Soak for 1 hour, rinse well. Repeat as required to restore the original color. Rinse well, add sodium bicarbonate until foaming stops, and rinse again. CupriSorb™ is now ready for reuse. If original color cannot be restored after several acid washes, proceed with rinses and bicarbonate step, then regenerate as HyperSorb™ or Purigen®.

So, we have had a DOA policy that has always been very generous. But lets just KISS, I mean “Keep it Simple Stupid”.

- If you have an item that unfortunatly arrives at your door in it’s bag dead, its covered.

- If you put a coral in your tank and within 2 hours of delivery it is dead, it’s covered.

- If your shipment is delayed by UPS and your corals arrive dead, they’re covered! (photos must be send within 2hrs of delivery even if shipment has been delayed)

DOA coverage means you will receive store credit for the item you purchased to use either for a like replacement item or on a totally different item! We do NOT cover the cost of shipping if you have a DOA item. DOA credit may be used only once. DOA credit may not be used to pay shipping fees nor counted towards the amount spent required to reach free shipping.

All DOA corals must be photographed within 2hrs of delivery, whether they’re in the bag or tank.

We do work with each customer on a one on one basis as each situation is unique! We care about you and our corals, and most importantly we want a good experience for everyone!
